Recent moisture effects on wildfires

March 11, 2013

Talihina boys making state was nice way to cap season

March 9, 2013

Well, it's hard to believe that the 2012-13 high school basketball season has come to an end, but it at least ended on a high note.
It was good to see the Talihina Golden Tigers return to state after a season off. Prior to 2012, the Tigers made state four straight seasons — winning the gold ball in 2011.
It just seemed that third time wasn't the charm for Talihina. The Golden Tigers upset Oktaha to win the regional title, then six nights later did likewise against Preston to win the area tournament and make state.
